Torrey Pines High School Reviews

Torrey Pines has opened my mind and eyes to many things. It has taught me how to work hard and strive to be greater everyday. The teachers care for their students and want the best for them. They push us past our limits thus teaching us valuable lessons and how to be hard workers. The campus is big, the people are friendly and although the classes can be challenging they will keep you on your feet wanting to learn more and more. I have met my best friends at this school and have gone through rough patches but everyone here is extremely supportive and proud to be studying at this amazing of a school. Everyday is a great day to be a falcon!
Review Torrey Pines High School
With an amazing ocean view, a beautiful campus, and extraordinary academics, I can proudly say TPHS is place of pure greatness. As the third generation in my family to attend this school, I feel immensely delighted to continue the tradition. All of the students are caring towards one another and the clubs and sports help the student body get involved. I love attending Torrey Pines and I couldn't imagine my high school career anywhere else!
There are hit-and-miss teachers with the curriculum, but looking at it beyond an academic point of view, it offers the typical HS experience with football games, all top-ranked sports teams, competitive mathletes and Science Fair ranked students, and different niches to fill any student's needs. I think the climate is what raises the school's rank because people come from competitive backgrounds, and families with high expectations. Compared to what administration could be doing to facilitate this, it is makes a negligible difference.
